Reseña del editor:

In 1953, in the presence of an investigator, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescalin, sat down and waited to see what would happen. When he opened his eyes everything was transformed. Huxley described his experience in The Doors of Perception and its sequel Heaven and Hell.

Contraportada:

One bright May morning in 1953, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescaline, sat down and waited to see what would happen. When he opened his eyes, everything, from the flowers in a vase to the creases in his grey flannel trousers, was completely transformed. 'A bunch of flowers shining with their own inner light. Those folds – what a labyrinth of endlessly significant complexity! I was seeing what Adam had seen on the morning of his own creation – the miracle, moment by moment, of naked existence.'

With an astonishing immediacy, Aldous Huxley described his first experience of this new 'sacramental vision of reality' in his famous 1954 essay 'The Doors of Perception'. In its 1956 sequel, 'Heaven and Hell', Huxley, reflecting on his earlier mescaline experience, went on to explore the history and nature of mystics and mysticism. Hugely influential, still bristling with a sense of excitement and discovery, these intense and illuminating writings remain the most extraordinary accounts of the visionary experience ever written.

"There is nothing the pen of Huxley touches which it does not illuminate, and as the record of a highly civilised, brilliantly articulate man under the influence of an astonishing drug. 'The Doors of Perception' is a tour de force."
